Emmanuel Boakye, Head of Licensing, who represented the Bank of Ghana (BoG), commended SG-Ghana for taking the initiative to bring enhanced services closer to the doorsteps of customers and prospective clients.
He said the financial sector played a crucial role in the development process by providing the needed finances for growth and economic wellbeing of the nation.
